Two new developments
Charles County developer Stephen P. McAllister has proposed building 1,300 homes on a site in Anne Arundel County and hopes to build an access road across the former Pennington Avenue landfill near Curtis Bay.
There's debate over the plan, which advanced past the City Council yesterday but still needs an OK by the Board of Estimates. Some residents are glad the landfill would be cleaned up, while some businesses foresee that new homeowners and current industrial traffic in the area will end up at odds.
Meanwhile, Lorraine Mirabella has a story today about plans to restore the North Avenue Market in midtown Baltimore:
Developers envision a market of a different sort. Plans call for an arts-focused mix of shops, eateries and offices that can become a gathering spot for Charles North, part of the city's emerging Station North arts district.
